For the purposes of preserving nature and encouraging the prudent use of our natural resources, Brookhaven College has designated an area north of the campus as a “natural state.” This preservation will protect and enhance the College’s learning environment, protect and respect the wildlife population and express clearly a strong belief in the value of conserving nature.

The tract defined below is designated as a protected area of natural state.

The area north of campus bounding at the creek line known as tract #1, containing approximately 20 acres and described as:

Area of Natural State

Under the authority of the College, the following conservation is followed:

  1. No pruning, clearing, natural debris removal or other maintenance, with the exception of trash removal and bush hog mowing as necessary to prevent a fire hazard or as directed by the local Fire Marshall, will occur.
  2. The President’s Cabinet has the authority to recommend to District officials, thence to the Board of Trustees, use of this area for construction of permanent facilities appropriate to the mission of the DCCCD, thereby changing the area’s status as an area of natural state.
